Forward to next post: Open thread 148
You’re Twittering up a tweet,
A link makes your tweet complete,
But how to the character limit can it comply?
B I T— L Y!
But everyone who obtains
One of those L Y domains
Should know to whom they are giving control thereby:
Tripo— L I!
The Libyan government’s vexed
By content overtly-sexed.
How do they act when they see sexy links go by?
Censorious— L Y!
And if you’re a blogging guy
Who hears all this hue and cry,
And wants to bring up Mitt Romney’s dropping his mitt.ly URL shortening service, remind people that tr.im isn’t accepting new URLs, and wonders if maybe this whole thing doesn’t smell just a little bit of anti-Islamic panic, which is all way too many syllables to fit into this cramped lyrical scheme, so how can one even even try?
Brazen— L Y!
(After Tom Lehrer, unworthiLY.)
